This magical oasis of foxiness is called Zao Fox Village, and it’s located in Japan’s Miyagi prefecture where 100 animals and 6 different types of foxes romp and play together. For 100 yen (or about 85 US cents), visitors are provided with food, but because the foxes are not domesticated, they are cautioned against hand-feeding them or bringing small children.
Foxes are popular creatures in Japanese folktales and lore, and many of us may be interested in the history and culture behind these foxes. However, the main reason to visit Fox Village is that they are just so darn cute. What do you think about this village? It might be good place for visitor, but for foxes, I am kindly feeling sorry.

1. Cheese Drink
Because Japan is an island nation, it has been historically hard to support a large dairy industry because of the limited amount of available land. Therefore, many Japanese people have never developed much of a taste for milk products. Today, however, some companies are hoping to introduce more dairy into the Japanese marketplace.
This new cheese drink comes in 3 different flavors; plain, blueberry, and yuzu citrus. They use a special process to cut down on the sweet taste of the flavored drinks. It is said to have a taste similar to yogurt, but with a cheesy aftertaste.
